Thread: Maximum State Reciprocity

  1. Take the time and effort to personally check the state gun laws yourself. Depend on nobody and no websites for that information (but as a lead up to your own research, no problem).

    Each state has their own form of driver's license testing and requirements yet the DL's are recognized through the auspices of a federal statute that mandates every state recognize every other state's DL. Simple.

    Surely we can trust one another sufficiently to do exactly the same with concealed carry permits (which should not be required but that is another story).

    Final answer.

    Some states, like Missouri automatically honor any state license and some states will only honor a license issued by that state.
    The only way to carry in all states is to be a LEO under 218. Even some retired LEO can qualify.

    But for a civilian probably being able to carry in more than 35 states will require more than two non-res licenses. Until Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin pass or amend their current laws, there will be a big blank spot.

    This is what a Kansas resident and Utah non-res license get..

    Not saying I agree, its just interesting to note the politics between states which prevent reciprocity.
    So CMJ...
    I'm a resident (that'a where I vote) of Montana, but I 'live' in both Montana and Florida. I have a Montana CWP and a Florida CWFL. Now there really is no such thing as a Florida Non-Resident CWFL. It is simply a FL CWFL issued to someone that shows an address NOT in the State of FL. There is no difference in procedure or in the 'requirements' to obtain one between an FL resident, and someone who reside outside FL. And I can also say this... form MY perspective, there is no difference in the 'requirements' to obtain a MT CWP and a FL CWFL - same DD-214, same background check, and same fingerprints. ;)

    Now for SOME REASON, SC does not honor MT CWP's (Montana honors SC though). SC does honor FL CWFL's but ONLY if the address on the CWFL is inside the state of Florida. But here's the "Coup de grāce"... SC honors a VA permit, but you can get a VA permit by ONLY TAKING AN ON-LINE course. Yep, the "Standars" associated with an on-line course must be much more regirous than serving 360 days in a Combat Zone!

    So it really can't be "Standards" since as i pointed out, the standards are the same, it's just petty BS poliitics (imo), and that's why I am very strong proponent of "National Right to Carry" and why when I had the opportunity to personally tell a US Senator that voted NO on the bill last summer, that while I respected his service, I think that got that vote completely wrong.

Now in a few months I am PCSing to CO, who from all the research I have done only except resident permits from texas. So do you think that I will have issues keeping my texas resident permit and using it in CO?
    I think you shoud TRY get some information from the CO AG's office. I think there is enough of a question there that I would be very careful. An alternative is to get a TX DL.

    Back In the 50's my granparents vacation traveled every year. I remember hearing stories from them of being stopped and told my GP's DL was not valid "in that state", but that the Local Yokel Cop just happened to be selling "That States" DL and oh by the way you could take care of your "Driving without a License" fine on the spot too!
